July 1st 2024, Barcelona – Nils Andersson will return to the FIA RX2e Championship grid for the fourth season to defend his crown. Andersson will compete for Team E by KMS. “Hopefully we are able to fine tune what we learnt last year and improve in the same direction. We have a strong team and i belive we can defend the title from last year”, he says regarding his expectations about this season

Andersson joined RX2e midway through its inaugural campaign in 2021 and got some impressive results in his debut season. He then came back in 2022, pushing eventual champion Viktor Vranckx hard at Höljes and again in round two in Hell – coming away with the runner-up spoils on each occasion and finishing in third position in the Championship.

And in 2023 he finally got the big reward and achieved the RX2e crorwn. He did that by being consistent in every race of the season, always finishing in the TOP5, topped with two P2 in Hell and Estering.

To keep the Championship title this year, he will have to rapidly adapt to the new tracks that will be joining the Championship this season, such as Nyirád, while fighting with old rivals such as Isak Sjökvist.

Nils Andersson began his career in the Crosskart class at the age of 13, steadily climbing the ladder in domestic competition before clinching consecutive RallyX Nordic crowns in the category in 2018 and 2019 – prompting graduation to Supercar Lites level in 2020.

Reaching the final on his debut would prove to be the highlight of a frustrating campaign, but a switch to Kristoffersson Motorsport for 2021 sparked a dramatic upturn in fortunes, with Andersson emerging as a genuine RallyX Nordic title contender under the guidance of multiple FIA World Rallycross Champion, Johan Kristoffersson.

Before the season start, he got the chance to hop on the car: “I’ve had some good tests from the pre season. A lot to get used to with these new tires which will be a challenge. I just wait to start racing and see where we are”.

The 2024 RX2e campaign will get underway in Höljes, Sweden, on 6-7 July.
